The Magic of Motherhood gets to the heart of being a mom. You will find funny stories, happy stories, and insecure moments too. Always pointing you back to the fact that you are an awesome mom and equipped with everything your children need.
One of my favorite chapters in the book was, “I’m Gonna Need Backup” when the author talked about adoption and how her deep belief we are all put in the families God wants us to be in. I completely agreed with her. But what an assurance when you feel down or inadequate in your mothering skills that God picked you (and no one else) to be the mom for your kids.
I enjoyed reading this book because it was so easy to relate to the experiences of each of the writers. Each one wrote with candidness (sometimes a little too much) and honesty. It’s a perfect afternoon read, each chapter is short. They take about 10 -15 minutes to read and can be read in any order.
The Magic of Motherhood is perfect summer reading by the pool.
